First: No.
Second: Those Borg fanships in the OP look hideous.
Third: No.

It's bad enough what Voyager did to the Borg. There is no "Queen" as well, the Borg are a hive mind. Any attempt to personalize them hurts. Baaad.

I would however settle for a kind of "monster play". Let people temporarily control a cube in a big PvEvP fleet action. It doesn't matter how it wouldn't make sense, just from a gameplay point of view it would make for interesting matches.

Says it all really.

HMM makes me wonder what a Borg coffee tastes like...and what kind of options their Mr. Coffee provides.

-Cream
-Sugar
-Microfibers
-Eyepiece
-Nanoprobes

...?

Let's put it like this - when you ask for a coffee that resembles an oil slick, they take it literally.

They can't...Neelix has stolen their entire stock of the stuff.

You could play as one of the collectives' command drones like locutus who is mostly self aware just has no emotions.

Or maybe you could play as a Borg who is a member of a group of drones who escaped the collective due to a software glitch.

That decided to start a small collective were everyone is self aware and they decide to try to destroy the old borg collective so that no one has to go through what they went through.

However for efficiency's sake they share their knowlage via assimilation and still use borg vessels (modified to not respond to the old collective).

I vote no playable Borg collective. I'm fine with liberated drones as part of other factions, but the collective should be off limits.

If this game is to have another faction, it should be Cardassian/Dominion.

Hey hey now!

BAD ZOMBIE BAD GO BACK TO THE GROUND!

Seriously folks, if a thread hasn't been responded to in 30 days please don't bring it back up If you feel you need to continue the thread by all means make a new one!
